The crypto social media platform Voice finally launched on EOS after months of delays. In our latest EOS news, we are about to find out more about the latest launch.
The new blockchain-based crypto social media platform Voice launched on EOS, and it will now reward users for quality content, aiming to create a transparent social media platform. The website is open for all people to browse but early access registrants will also be able to publish content. The EOS-based platform first conjured up by Block.one. Anyone can sign up to browse the site which means it functions as a decentralized version of Facebook or Medium but those that want to publish on the site, will be required to register until August 15.

The launch came earlier than it was originally anticipated because it was supposed to happen after beta testing finished on August 15. Voice wrote in an email titled “Hello World.”
“We opened up early. We couldn’t wait.”
Today’s launch was announced by CEO Salah Michael Zalatimo, who said the platform aims to bring “transparency, humanity and authenticity” back to social media which Voice says it’s heavily corrupt. The platform rewards the users with Voice tokens for posting quality content and incentivizing better contributions. Block.one, is the same company that raised $4 billion to build the EOS protocol. Voice was destined for the EOS blockchain but it now runs on a private version of the protocol. The launch of the Voice was not quite straightforward and has arrived almost a year after Block.one intended. Block.one announced the launch of Voice in 2019 with the intent to launch it in the fall of the same year.
In March 2020, Block.one pushed $150 million into Voice and the CEO Brendan Blumer announced that he was “handing the reins” to the CEO of Voice Zalamito and that’s when the platform broke off from Block.one. Zalamito referenced the stalled released saying:
“We were prepping for a big reveal in the fall—but things changed. The world changed. So, we’ve decided to open up our platform now and invite the community to be a part of the building process.”
Voice joined the list of applications that wanted to democratize and monetize social media such as DLive and Steem. As companies boycott Facebook and Twitter, maybe Voice will be the one to make a change.
